Uber Cup: Congratulations, Ahmad!

Day in and day out, our partner drivers take to the roads to provide you with a safe and reliable ride. To show our thanks to the dedicated drivers that power the Uber system, we’re sending 7 of the top drivers to Brazil for the sporting event of the year!

From the East Coast, our Uber Cup Winner is Ahmad Zaki from Washington, DC!

Ahmad has been dominating the streets of DC. With more than 2,400 trips since February, he has perfected his service and regularly wows his riders. As a recent passenger commented: “Ahmad was by far the best driver we’ve ever had. You will be lucky if you get him!.” Originally from Afghanistan, Ahmad has been living and working in the US for 18 years.  A great dad as well as driver, Ahmad was so ecstatic when he found out that he’d won, he drove immediately to his son’s college to share the good news.

To show our appreciation to Ahmad for always putting the rider experience first, we’re sending him and his 19-year-old son, Idris, to Rio De Janiero for a seven-night stay and and chance to scope out the big games!

Partners like Ahmad bring professionalism, dedication, and a smile to our city’s roads and to our community each day. We are so proud to partner with them.

If you’re lucky enough to be connected with Ahmad as your driver, be sure to congratulate him on a job well done!

Congratulations, Ahmad, and Uber on in Rio!
